Hello, I have recently inherited from my grandfather's estate this 18k solid gold Accutron 214. I am still researching it and trying to get more information about it. I do not know which year it was made as I have not been able to open the back case yet and there is no indication on the back. From what I have learned I am pretty sure its is a 214. I had a jeweler look at it and the band and movement case are 18k solid gold. The watch itself weighs almost 95grams and the jeweler estimated that around 70g of the weight was in gold. I do not have a proper battery for it but I tried a similar type battery in it and all the movement does work. I didn't want to leave a wrong voltage battery in it and risk damage. There is no case or documentation. If you have any questions or can provide me with additional information about this watch please write to me.
Edit/Update 1/3/12: I brought the watch to a reputible watch store. The head repair specialist opened and looked at it. He has 20+ years of experience and went to school at Bulova hq. It is a 214H model Accutron, movement 342 and item# possibly 14369232 (could not be 100% read from inscription). The watch was last serviced in 2010 and looks clean inside. It has 14 jewels and works great. The only thing we could not specifically identify was the year, but it has to be between 1960 and 1964. There is no year code anywhere we could find.
This watch is for sale. If you have any questions please feel free to message me. Thank you.
